My brother George and I both moved to Naples, Florida.

Email for me is as follows:
donb125@centurylink.net

George's email is:
gjungle@embarqmail.com

We are still trying to find names of other troops that were there during George's time.

He came from N Company Rangers of 173rd

Does anybody remember the Medics name?
He was one of the troops that went out and brought back Steffe and the other WIA.

Thanks for any info that can be provided

Hi Murray:
I was at FSB Mahoney in 69-70 "A" battery recorder in the chief of smoke's hooch and #1 gun section for a few months. Do you remember the name of the FSB after we hooked out of Mahoney to the an Loa valley?

FSB Tape Map page is 6738 II. Were you there when the XO post was fragged? I can't remember the name of the XO. He was from a ranch in Montana. Sgt Cutter was the chief of smoke. It was the the XO's driver who was hurt the worst. Not sure he lived. Don't remember his name. The BC was Captain Rice.

I am searching for info about or for someone who may have served with B battery, 3/319th Field Artillery from August 1969-June 1970. My dad served during this time and I would like to know the location he served in so I can some day visit Vietnam and the area. If you have info that would be great. Thanks!

I was with A/3/319 FA from Jan 70 - Jun 71
The two major facilities were LZ English map page 6837-IV and LZ Uplift map page 6837-III. You can find them marked on a map at [www.redwarriors.us] I'm not sure, but I think B Battery was at FSB Salem (about 2 Km north of LZ Uplift, on the east side of Highway 1) for a time. They might also have been at FSB Tape in the An Lao Valley west of LZ English. Murray Fields

A/3/319th Artillery last part of 1969.
I have recently come across some one that posted to the Vietnam Wall that he knew Michael W. Steffe who was KIA
11-3-1969. He said he was on # 4 Center.
He said FSB base as Mahoney.
Does that ring a bell with any out there.
My brother George and I have been trying to locate former members of this FSB, No one could remember the name.

Thanks
Don

Hi I was at Mahoney on perimeter point when Michael Steffe was killed. It's a complicated story but he did not have to go out side the perimeter that night. His death set off a series of events. If you need info be glad to provide.

I got to Mahoney in Jan 70 so anything I can tell you is second hand. After several months at Mahoney, the battery was split up. I went to Tuy Hoa with three guns. The firebase was named FSB Steffe. There was a photo taken of several of the men holding a "FSB Steffe" sign. It was to be sent to his family. I think my section chief, Doug O'Brien was in the picture. I can't guarantee my memory anymore. The attack happened at night in monsoon rain. Someone spotted sappers in the perimeter wire. There was a firefight. Pvt Steffe was with a team that was sent outside the perimeter wire and he was shot. The Battery commander's name was Capt (Sammy?) Littleton. Mahoney was close to the ocean, flat and sandy. Mr Steffe seemed to be well thought of. Maybe not germaine, some guy wanted to fire his grenade launcher at the sappers. To insure that it cleared the wire he fired at high angle. The round landed in a group of huts a hundred meters from the perimeter. Even after Steffe's death they continued to send teams outside the perimeter at night. Being new in country I didn't much question the wisdom.

I knew Sp4 Steffe and the other two who were WIA.The ones who went out of the wire to get enemies' bodies were all volunteers. If you want a copy of the memorial service photo that I took of the service and a copy of the article that was in the stars and Stripes on Mahoney. You may email me or write me. My address is Robert L. Gibson, 133 Coffee Break Drive, Fountain Inn, SC 29644. My email is in my wife's name brendagibson0794@att.net.
